    Apparently it was not Ireland's great play that resulted in their victory ove the AB's - It was the Wallabies fault, (pretty predictably) according to Steve Hanson and Gregor Paul (who also went on to lay ground work for some future excuses).

    Even though the Tests against ZA and maybe Los Pumas were up to the mark, it still seems to be Australia's fault that NZ lost to Ireland.


    Therefore, according to current thinking it's Cameron Clyne,s fault.

    Weak Wallabies are holding back the All Blacks- AAP (via The OZ)

    Australia are under-performing, leaving South Africa as the only southern hemisphere country providing the All Blacks with the top-flight opposition they need, according to New Zealand coach Steve Hansen.

    Hansen conceded their big Bledisloe Cup wins this year came against a team who “are not quite right” and weren’t at the same level as international heavyweights South Africa, England and Ireland.

    The All Blacks recorded a loss and a narrow win against the Springboks in the Rugby Championship, followed by a one-point defeat of England and last week’s 16-9 loss to an exceptional Ireland in Dublin.

    The latter result has prompted many, including Hansen, to label Ireland as World Cup favourites in Japan next year.

    The arm-wrestle at Aviva Stadium was a far cry from the three romps against Michael Cheika’s Wallabies.

    New Zealand won the Tests in Sydney, Auckland and Yokohama by a combined tally of 115 to 45, scoring 17 tries in the process. Yet they went tryless in Dublin.

    Hansen said there was a noticeable step up required this year against the Springboks, who had been fodder for the All Blacks in recent Rugby Championship campaigns.

    “There is no doubt the style of game that is played by South Africa is similar to the style played up here (northern hemisphere), ” he said. “I still believe Australia are a really good rugby side. There is definitely something missing because they are not quite right and are not performing to the level they can.

    “But the more we play teams like South Africa, Ireland and England, France which we have done this year it is good for us. We have had a bit if a preview so to speak.”

    Senior rugby journalist Gregor Paul was less diplomatic in a New Zealand Herald column, labelling Bledisloe Cup Tests the “weakest currency” in top tier international rugby.

    Paul said the All Blacks will suffer a slow malaise if Australian teams can’t unearth greater quality at Test and Super Rugby level.

    New Zealand’s season finishes with a Test against Italy in Rome on Saturday while Australia play England at Twickenham.

    I would argue the Wallabies already have suffered “malaise”. And the “stronger as four” plan was the very heart of that malaise.
